3 Poetique/paratextes
Paris, France SEUIL 1987 2020095327 / 9782020095327 Paperback Used: Good Paperback 
Seuils (Paris), 1987. Issue of "Poetique". White wraps as issued. Tall 8vo. 8 essays in 127 pages, presented by Genette. In French. Small red x on top corner of first page (itself a paratext of this copy, found on a sidewalk book cart.) First appearance of the literary concept identified by Genette as those things in a published work that accompany the text, things such as the author's name, the title, preface or introduction, or illustrations. "Paratexts are those liminal devices and conventions, both within and outside the book, that form part of the complex mediation between book, author, publisher, and reader: titles, forewords, epigraphs, and publishers' jacket copy are part of a book's private and public history. In Paratexts, an English translation of Seuils, Gerard Genette shows how the special pragmatic status of paratextual declarations requires a carefully calibrated analysis of their illocutionary force.
